It will be clear sky today. No precipitation throughout the week. Remember, drink plenty of water, eat something that's not processed junk food, and stretch before physical activity. Solidarity, and have a good day!

repairing vs patching 

Gradually realizing the difference between a repair and a.. "patch"? "Workaround"? I'm still trying to find the right words.

An illustrative example:

- Repair: fixing something that's broken such that it works basically as well as before (or better!).

- "Patch": restoring baseline functionality, but perhaps you need to remember to wiggle the thing first, or the other thing is now super finnicky, or you need to hold it at an awkward angle, or you need to re-patch it again in a couple of weeks.

Does this resonate with any of y'all? Interested in terminology & general thoughts re: how y'all approach repairs!

BTW, I'm pretty sure the white things are actually seed *pods*. They eventually open up and release the actual seeds, which are similarly gnarly

The real question is how are cats going to sabotage VR?

I always thought I knew what people were talking about when contrasting birdsite with here.

I didn't.

It's bad over there.

seeing a lot of new ppl here posting their art, which is great :blobcatlove: !

but most of those pictures don't have captions, which is not great :blobcatglaredrink:

captioned pictures are a big part of the culture here, much more than they are on twitter, so if you have the spoons it would be greatly appreciated if you would caption your pics

some of us, myself included, go so far as to avoid boosting posts that don't have captions, and I'd really like to boost the art I've seen today!

NFTs are about money, not art. They do not serve the best interests of artists, and it's increasingly common to hear of artists who've had their art stolen by NFT sites. If you're thinking of getting into NFTs, *please* research thoroughly to avoid getting scammed.
